I would say I have a below-average memory, but,
probably because the Dead are so important to me, I focussed
very intently at their shows. I would guess I could not only list 90% of the 250+ show I attended, but, if quizzed, could get most of the setlists at least 50% correct. It helps that I still listen to the Dead about four hours daily.
What I can't do is remember dates, so I have to say, for
instance "the second Tampa show in '78" or the "fall show
at Charlotte 1984". It amazes me how serious collectors
can effortlessly rattle off dates across the 30-year span
of the band.
